Love and Spider-Man

The following is a blog post simply explaining how and when I fell in love with Spider-Man.

Spider-Man 72I had always been a big fan of the character ever since my dad brought home a comic book, that was the very early 90’s. It was in 1996 however, when Marvel was at the tail end of the Clone Saga, I began reading Spider-Man comics on a monthly basis. The first issue was dated September 1996 and I stood in the newsagent flipping through the issue. Up until that point, my only real exposure to Spider-Man came from the 60’s and 90’s cartoon series of the same name. The latter of the cartoons where season long story arcs were a popular thing. I think it prepared me for comic books in general. When looking at the cover on the shelf though, that was a very different Spider-Man to what I was use to.

Spider-Man and the Marvel Cinematic Universe

News of Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been known for about a month now. Initially I was going to post a blog as soon as the news broke, but as the hours went on more and more news broke. So I decided to wait. And wait, and sadly wait far too long. Eventually I deleted what I had written down and then out of nowhere while at work, I had a sudden urge to write. So the following are just a handful of things I wanted to say about Spider-Man and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. My thoughts, and hopefully if you agree (or don’t) I’d love to hear down below in the comments. A quick warning of potential SPOILERS BELOW. (more…)

Top Five Disappointing Games 2014

Last year I posted my Top Five Disappointing Games 2013. As the title suggests, I listed my top five games which really disappointed me for that year. Some of those games weren’t critically panned or considered bad by any stretch of the imagination, however they were disappointing for reasons I listed. The same applies for 2014 and now that its wrapping up, I decided to revisit the concept for this year. I’ve played a few more games so now the list has been expanded with an honourable mention, so a Top Five plus One.

Remember, there will be possible SPOILERS for each game below.

Also need to point out the games listed below are disappointing games. They may not be technically bad video games, but if I was let down by them, they made the list. SIMPLE AS THAT.

Enjoy.
